Welcome back to Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
We stopped by to check out what’s new so you can stay in the loop! Let’s get started.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
At Riverside Depot, we spotted a new Beauty and the Beast handheld mirror! It features some rose detailing and script that reads “Beauty is found within.” It’s $29.99!
And in OTHER Beauty and the Beast news, a character mug got a major glow-up! The new Chip mug has more facial dimension — he even has rosy cheeks! — and a reshaped handle and base.
We’re loving this new version of the mug. And get this: it’s the same price as the original mug at $22.99! This upgrade seems well worth it.
Discovery Trading Company
At Discovery Trading Company, we found two of Disney’s new hats! We’d previously seen these accessories at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but it looks like they’ve made their way to Animal Kingdom. There’s a pink Ariel hat…
…and an orange Stitch hat!
Both of these hats are $27.99.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Additional Updates
We have a few new updates from Kilimanjaro Safaris! In the loading area, we’ve got new floor markers to simplify the loading process.
Now, guests boarding the trucks don’t have to count (or guess) what row number they are!
Hopefully this new process will make loading WAY more organized (and a lot less like a stampede!).
And while we were ON the ride, we kept an eye out for a baby rhino who has officially made his Kilimanjaro Safaris debut! Ranger, a four month old white rhino calf, joined his mama Kendi last week on the safari.
Make sure you look for this pair next time you’re on this attraction!
